Tyees try to take a bite out of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs

The Legion Ladies Auxiliary Peewee B Tyees made the trip to the second best salmon capital of the world last weekend to take on the Alberni Bulldogs.

The crew had a shaky start and managed to escape the first 10 minutes still tied, despite the rink seemingly tilted in Alberni’s favour.  The Tyees took off from there and built a 3-0 lead thanks to 2 goals from ‘Loopsie’ (Nathan Underhill, previously of Kamloops!).  Both goals were ably supported by linemates Kobe Koizumi and Kiera Arsenault.  Wyatt Murray made it 3-0 by finishing off a fine rush by d-man Tyler Jochimski with a ‘bar down’ goal.

Port Alberni stormed back and tied it up 3-3 mid way through the third.  The intrepid salmon were running out of steam however, and the final score was 5-3 for the Bulldogs.  Austin Cameron continued her strong play along the wing and Ty McNeilly worked hard in his own end to defend our goal and move the puck out of harm’s way.
